Daniel Lanois

Born:

"I want to leave something behind that means something," Daniel Lanois told Rolling Stone' s James Henke, explaining his singular approach to life and record making. "Am I going to follow my own ideas and philosophies, or am I just going to fall in the rut of doing rubbish for the sake of making a living?" Lanois's decision to follow a more meaningful approach led him from recording groups in a homemade studio in the 1970s to forging a partnership with avant-garde producer Brian Eno in the early 1980s to producing some of the best-known—even legendary—acts in popular music, including U2, Peter Gabriel, Robbie Robertson, the Neville Brothers, and Bob Dylan.

The Howard Hughes Suite: High & Lonesome

Read "Tony and Janis 2 Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Pino Palladino and Blake Mills: Notes with Attachments

Read "Notes with Attachments" reviewed by Chris May


Do not be put off by the cover. It might suggest inaccessible, up itself, bone-dry cerebralism, but the reality is contrariwise. Around a third of the music is vaguely reminiscent, in spirit if not in execution, of the 1949-1950 Birth Of The Cool sessions conducted by Miles Davis with arrangers Gil Evans, John Lewis, Gerry Mulligan ...

U2: All That You Can't Leave Behind 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (2CD)

Read "All That You Can't Leave Behind 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (2CD)" reviewed by Doug Collette


The music of U2 on All That You Can't Leave Behind is very much in keeping with the austere black and white graphics, preserved throughout the graphic design of this digipak as well as its enclosed twenty-four page booklet within. A distinct move away from the density of production experimentation on their three previous studio albums—Achtung ...
